In an effort to get a bit creative with our desserts we decided to try a new way of making chocolate pudding… we added avocados! Since avocados are in season right now we made this chocolate avocado pudding for dessert and couldn’t be happier.
The taste was smooth and silky and the chocolate flavor was enhanced by the avocado. Plus? It was SO easy to make. It took no time at all and it didn’t need to chill.
Now I know exactly what I’ll do with avocados when I don’t want to make guacamole or put it on my sandwich and the kids are asking for dessert… it’ll be pudding time!
Chocolate Avocado Pudding
- 1/4 cup soft margarine (I used spreadable butter w/ canola oil)
- 1 cup pureed/mashed avocado
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup corn starch
In a medium saucepan melt margarine on low.
Add avocado, sugar, cocoa, and vanilla and stir well to incorporate.
Use a spatula to mash avocado more so that everything is smooth. Cook for 3-4 minutes until thickened.
Take pudding off the heat and add corn starch. Stir well. Serve pudding warm and enjoy!
